Digital pressure gauge Type R

Product description

Possible areas of applicationdigital-pressure-gauge-type-r

Digital pressure gauges are particularly suitable for both stationary and mobile measurement and display of pressure. They can be used as reference pressure gauges to simplify the checking, adjustment and calibration of other pressure measurement devices directly on site.


Tare / Zero-Function
User-defined zero point setting at the push of a button makes offset adjustment easy and eliminates the need for tedious mechanical adjustment. Single-point adjustment allows the linear characteristic curve to be shifted in positive or negative direction over the entire measuring range.

Multi-point adjustment can be performed if it is necessary to adjust the indicated values at different test points. Two-point adjustment is available for setting the zero point and slope of the measuring cell curve. Type R digital pressure gauges allow up to six offset values to be programmed in order to shift the characteristic curve to meet the most stringent customer expectations.

The large illuminated digital local display shows the measured pressure and indicates the current status of the digital pressure gauge, even under poor lighting conditions. This eliminates the difficult task of reading a dial gauge and avoiding parallax errors. Needle jitter due to vibration or pressure fluctuations is eliminated. Display damping or averaging can be configured directly using display filters. This ensures easy, tireless readout.

Min / Max Displays and Peak function
Experience shows that excess pressure and pressure peaks significantly higher than normal operating pressure occur at some measuring points. Min / max displays and fast peak value measurement cycles in digital pressure gauges assist in system analysis and allow peak values to be determined. This allows incorrect readings and violations of range limits to be detected and helps avoid damage to pressure systems. Preventive service is often less expensive than repairing or replacing defective instruments.

PC connection and software
Many digital pressure gauges have a serial interface port to allow measurement values and stored data to be transferred directly to a PC and documented. An inexpensive measurement data acquisition system can easily be assembled with suitable software and an interface converter. Processes can be readily monitored and analysed using the recorded and visualised measurements and all data can be exported using standard programs such as Microsoft Excel. Remote control is also possible. Various software packages with extensive recording and display functions, logger and alarm evaluation as well as for calibration are available.

Data memory
The logger function for local data storage can be used to record pressure curves automatically and perform leak tests. The integrated data memory in digital pressure gauges allows a variety of data sets to be recorded directly. The time interval between samples is programmable and the maximum recording interval is configurable. The stored values can be displayed on a PC. Data import at the press of a button is also possible. In this case the data is shown directly on the display. In this process the values are automatically annotated with the date and time of day using an integrated real-time clock.

Temperature display
Temperature measurement is often required in addition to pressure measurement. For this purpose, a temperature sensor is integrated in the measuring cell to detect the temperature of the medium. The process temperature can be displayed at the press of a button. This allows two quantities to be measured at a single measuring point, which saves costs.

Protection class
High IP protection classes (IP65 (front) / IP40) are available to minimise dust and water sensitivity. Rugged, impact-resistant digital pressure gauges are fitted with rubber caps for protection during transport and field use.

Battery operation / Auto-Off
Power is supplied by long-life batteries (ordinary or rechargeable). An external AC adapter can also be used. To increase battery operating time, a programmable Auto-Off function switches off the power to the instrument after prolonged inactivity. The electronics are designed for extremely low power consumption, which enables a battery life of significantly more than 8000 hours.
